Broken (Child)

VERSE 1
Bright
Light then
It all went dark - for you

Then you see
Your family
Huddled together - your mother's broken

And there is the school where you won't cause trouble
There is your body buried under the rubble
And every bone - has been broken

BRIDGE
Palestinian child
Palestinian child
Palestinian child
Palestinian child

VERSE 2
Wondering what happened to them
That they'd become such violent men
Have their hearts - all been broken?

Your struggling hard to make sense of it all
As the bombs explode and the buildings fall
The whole city - is being broken

Who's Netanyahu? Why does he attack?
Who is Hamas and why does he fight back?
Why would a ceasefire - ever be broken?

CHORUS
Down in the valley of the cursed and damned
Who'll lead us through to the promised land
Whooooaaa
You are one
You are one

VERSE 3
Float away
From the fighting men
Across the wall - to Jerusalem

[See a people who've only known persecution
Their ancestors all killed by execution
But their spirit - never broken]

And then a missile goes flying by
Launched by your brother into the sky
It falls downwards - you can't stop it

You hover over the fire and smoke
Hear the women cry and the children choke
Then floating up you see an Israeli child

CHORUS
Down in the valley of the cursed and damned
Who'll lead us through to the promised land
Whooooaaa
You are one

Whooooaaa
You are one
You are one
